Dr. Dennis Galvan

Dean and Vice Provost, Division of Global Engagement, University of Oregon

I support WorldOregon, because I believe global engagement is the clear, straight line path toward a positive future for Oregon and the U.S.
Other places I've frequented and worked: Lots of time in Senegal, Indonesia, Gabon, Singapore, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, West Berlin; also University of Florida, UC Berkeley, Committee for the Study of the American Electorate, IBM, Pearl Avenue Branch of the San Jose Public Library, and Benech Farms (apricot orchard).

Languages: French, Spanish, Wolof, a little Serer, and Bahasa Indonesia
I am most proud of: Many years spent in village of Toucar, Senegal building relationships and exploring community empowerment.
